iSport International Ltd – GP2 Series 2009
Barcelona Sprint Race  – Sunday 10th May 2009


Giedo van der Garde (NED) – P4
Diego Nunes (BRA) – P8

 

After starting from P2 in this morning’s sprint race, hopes were high for another handful of points and iSport rookie Giedo van der Garde did not fail to deliver. After dropping a couple of places at the start after being pushed onto the grass, van der Garde drove to P4 to take 3 more points to add to his tally this weekend.

iSport driver Diego Nunes had a difficult task starting from P11 after being caught up in a collision yesterday. The young Brazilian finished P8 in the sprint just short of the points but showing promising speed in his iSport car ready for the next round in Monaco in 2 weeks time.
 

Giedo van der Garde

“I finished 4th. I got pushed on the start because Kobayashi pushed me on the grass because I had a much better start then two guys passed me because I had to brake quite early for the first corner. I was 3rd but by lap 3 I was 4th because Grosjean passed me. Then the rest of the race I stayed with them at the beginning as I was consistent and quick but then the middle of the race I dropped off because the rear tyres went off. So more points we are now 5th or 6th in the championship so I’m quite pleased and hopefully next race will be good”.


Diego Nunes

“The start was normal I think I lost one position as I think Di Grassi jumped the start but nobody saw it. Again I got stuck behind him, I attacked him but he cut the chicane and he came back in front of me and nobody penalised him. Then finally I attacked him again and then I could push and I caught the group in front of me, I was very quick. I was missing 7 laps in the end. I managed to pass Petrov and Hulkenberg and then I caught Fillipi but one lap wasn’t enough, the race was already over. The car was very very good and it was a shame that yesterday we did not have a very good race, but for sure we’re going to work hard to have a good race at Monaco and try to get the win”.
